Notes: Lake Guntersville is expected to fish well for this tournament. Water temperatures are hovering in the mid-40-degree range, but expected to warm as the tournament nears. According to recent reports, crankbaits, Rat-L-Traps and umbrella rigs have been producing some big catches as of late. Tournament anglers are expected to target the grass and transition areas from the deep ledges to the shallow spawning flats. The winner of this tournament is expected to bring a five-bass limit around 20 pounds to the scale.

NOTES: The bass fishing on Lake Keowee is expected to be good. Recent reports indicate high water temperatures have kept the bass from their traditional winter pattern of congregating on the bottom of the lake. Instead, a lot of fish are being found suspended in the water column. But, with cold weather looming, fish should settle into their normal areas. The dominant pattern will most likely be drop-shotting in 50 to 70 feet of water, but fish will be found in deeper and shallower depths. The winner of this tournament is expected to bring a five-bass limit nearing 18 pounds to the scale.
